How to Manage Features in Website Builder

Website Builder is a platform that allows you to create powerful websites without the need for any technical background, or hiring a developer for that matter. With Website Builder, you are given access to easily customisable templates, a drag-and-drop editor, a mobile editor, and a quick-setup social media integration.

One of the Website Builder tools that will help you create your website is called a Feature.

What is a Feature?

A Feature is a ready-made layout element, such as a Text item, Heading, Photo, Video, Button, Form, Map or Facebook Like, which you can use to build your custom, professional-looking website pages in Website Builder.

Accessing the Features Library

You can access the Feature you need in the library of Features, by following the steps below:

  1. Click Sign Up / Log In at the top of this page.
  2. Select Account Manager from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter your username and password then, click Log In.
  4. Click the Visit My Account button.
  5. Click Website Builder from the menu at the top of the page.
  6. Click on the Website Builder plan that you wish to manage.
    If you only have one Website Builder plan, you will automatically be redirected to its management page.
  7. Hover your mouse pointer over the [+] Icon at the upper right-hand section of the page and click Build Now.
  8. On the Sites page of your Website Builder Dashboard, hover your mouse pointer over the project/website that you would like to customise and click Edit.
    Or, if you haven't started one yet, click the Create Site button at the top-right corner, then select a template and click Create This Site to start building one.
  9. On the Website Builder Editor, click Build from the left-side menu. You are now viewing the Features Library.

Now that you’ve learned how to locate Features, you are free to manage them to suit your needs.

Managing Website Builder Features

Website Builder gives you the freedom to manage and layout Features by yourself. You can add, customise, resize, move, and delete Features, to build your website the way you want it.

Adding Features
From the Features Library, drag your chosen Feature and drop it onto one of the available placeholders on your page.

Customising Features
To customise a Feature, select it to display the editing menu and replace the selected sample content with the actual content you would like to appear on your site. You can then modify the selected element with the help of the editing menu that appears when you highlight the text.

Resizing Features
You can also change the size of the Features on your website. Resizing Features can be done vertically and horizontally.

  • To resize a Feature vertically, hover over it with the mouse cursor, click the resizing control that appears at the bottom of the Feature, and drag it upwards or downwards.
  • To resize a Feature horizontally, hover over it to display parallel vertical lines to the right and to the left of it, then drag one of these vertical lines left or right.

Moving Features
Customising the location and position of the Features on your website can also be achieved by simply following the steps below:

  1. Hover over its upper edge with the mouse cursor to display the moving control.
  2. Click the moving control and drag the Feature onto a different placeholder on your page.

Deleting Features
To delete a Feature, hover over it and click the [x] Delete Button on its top right-hand corner. The Feature will then be immediately removed.

Congratulations! You now know how to manage Website Builder Features.
